I use Blue Screen View (nirsoft.net). This tool can lead you to the cause of a BSOD. There isn't (so far as I know) a perfect .dmp viewer. You have to look through the dumps to see if you can figure out what is going on (often driver problems).

I use only Debugging Tools for Windows (WinDbg). Other Tools will not show the real cause every time.

You could also try WhoCrashed Home Edition for free for analyzing the blue dumps.

As suggested by "John Hurst" Blue Screen View  by NirSoft:

Info:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html

Download:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/bluescreenview.zip (In zip file)
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/bluescreenview_setup.exe (Full install and uninstall Support)
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/bluescreenview-x64.zip (64 bit in Zip File)

You could also analyze the file online without installing anything on your system, for that you could use the following online analyzer:

Thanks for the update. Most .dmp files are not that big - none that I have ever seen.

If you have Kernel Memory Dump or Full Memory Dump enabled most of the tools or site we have mentioned would not work. You would need "Small Memory Dump" enabled to work with these tools.

1.41Gb would be Kernel Memory Dump as "Small Memory Dump" are 256KB in size.

i also use only WinDBG  -i found others not always correct
you need to install it first of course, but then you need a bit of learning as well
if you only need to know more details of this dmp - post it here, then we can analyse it
